We will be running a special Hero Wod this Sunday Jan 5th. One of our CFABQ members, Lucas Medina, lost his niece Kiana O’ Niel on 12/23/13 she was 14 years old. Kiana loved Crossfit and we cannot think of a better way to remember her than with a Hero WOD. Here is a quote Kiana posted on her FB page:
“I think one of the biggest things I am grateful for is crossfit. I seriously have never been so in love with a hobby in my life. I’m grateful for one of the trainers helping me get over my biggest fear ,box jumps, and I’m grateful for the WOD everyday even though sometimes they suck, and I’m grateful for the support that goes on in crossfit.” -Kiana O’Neil
I think we all can relate at least in some degree to how she felt, and that is what makes this community so awesome. Together we can cellebrate a life that was taken way too soon. In addition to the WOD this Sunday we will do this workout every Feb 15th for Kiana’s birthday. If at all possible wear purple to the WOD as it was her favorite color. Let me know if you have any questions, thanks!!
